Mogolympics Concludes

The final week of Mogolympics arrived with our last three medal events – Equestrian, Freestyle and Fencing.

The criteria:

  • Equestrian – Build an outfit to compliment one of the horse mounts in the game. (Faction limitations apply, so no Orcs on a Stormwind pony)
  • Fencing – Time for some swordplay. Build your best outfit around the 1h sword of your choice.
  • Freestyle – Build your own NPC.

(Death Knight Plate)
Head: Conqueror’s Darkruned Helmet
Shoulder: Sanctified Scourgelord Shoulderplates
Chest: Conqueror’s Darkruned Battleplate
Belt: Belt of Absolute Zero
Legs: Legplates of the Violet Champion
Boots: Boots of the Funeral March
Gloves: Bladebreaker Gauntlets
Horse: Acherus Deathcharger

I was going to do a whole Headless Horseman theme at first but in the end, it looked more like a death knight than anything else.

(Alliance Plate)
Head: Steel Plate Helm
Shoulder: Imbued Plate Pauldrons
Chest: Glowing Breastplate of Truth
Belt: Girdle of the Righteous Path
Legs: Handcrafted Mastersmith Leggings
Boots: Life Force Chargers
Gloves: Flash Freeze Gauntlets
Sword: Windforged Rapier

This was a cross between my jouster and fencing idea. I was going to have the jouster theme as the equestrian entry but it wouldn’t make sense to be holding a weapon so this is what I ended up with.

Alliance Pirate
(Alliance Leather)
Head: Rifle Commander’s Eyepatch
Shoulder: Desecreated Shoulderguards
Chest: Cuirass of Calamitous Fate
Belt: Girdle of Lenience
Legs: Leggings of the Broken Beast
Boots: Sandals of Corrupted Water
Gloves: Marshseeker Gloves
Main Hand: Corpseweed Sickle

I always loved the look of the Alliance corset but since it’s also leather, there’s even less of a chance to see it on my Priest so even though I submitted my entry on a female Draenei, I’ve given myself some creative licence and showcased my entry using Cymre as the model :)

Stay tuned for the Closing Ceremony in (hopefully) a days time.

I also posted this just in time for my Round Table appearance in half an hour. Maybe I’ll see you there :)

BTW, there is now a Mogolympics website. Check out the post that features all my outfits and scores.

Mogolympics Midway Mark

Here we are, past the half-way mark for the Mogolympics. This week revealed the results for the Wrestling, Javelin and Archery events.

The Criteria:

  • Wrestling – Using one of the “championship” belts, design your own Azerothian pro wrestler
  • Javelin – Build an outfit around the polearm of your choice
  • Archery – Build an outfit around your favourite bow

Here are my contributions:

WrestlerWrestling (Mail)
Head: Arc-Scorched Helmet
Shoulder: Spaulders of Incoherence
Chest: Combat Training Vest
Belt: Firemend Cinch
Gloves: Gauntlets of Completion
Legs: Swiftarrow Leggings
Boots: Cleated Ice Boots

I originally used a male Draenei for this event but ended up using him elsewhere. Then I thought about what races were left and felt the Pandaren could pull the look off even better. I fell in love with this outfit and model as soon as I switched the race. In fact, I think it’s my favourite design out of the bunch.

Head: Crown of Flame
Shoulder: Bloodlust Epaulets
Chest: Glimmering Mail Breastplate
Belt: Masterwork Girdle
Gloves: Magnificent Gauntlets
Legs: Glimmering Mail Legguards
Boots: Triumphant Sabatons
Polearm: Blood-Tempered Ranseur

This set was going to be used for the Archery event with the Sunfury Bow in Kara but when I saw the polearm, I decided to swap my Archery and Javelin models. Looks like my gamble worked :)

Head: Guise of the Tidal Lurker
Shoulder: Soul Eater Shoulderguard
Chest: Grizzly Jerkin
Belt: Belt of Potent Chanting
Gloves: Shardtooth Gloves
Legs: Stormrage Legguards
Boots: Mindstrainer Treads
Ranged: Skyfire Hawk-Bow

My first thought consisted of a female Night Elf wearing a lot of brown and green leather pieces while wielding a leafy green bow but due to the weapon change above, I was able to follow through with my original idea.

I’m so excited by my first medal considering there’s a lot of stiff competition :D

Mogolympics Begins

As the first week of Mogolympics drew to a close, three of the nine medal results were revealed. But in case you missed out on the Opening Ceremony, take a moment to check it out.

So far we’ve seen a wide range of really great mogs. I really don’t envy the judges or JD for that matter – especially with 40+ competitors to get through.

As a recap, I was representing Ramkahen for this epic event.

The criteria for each medal qualifying round:

  • Cycling – Build a biker outfit to compliment the Chopper. It must be either Leather or Mail
  • Hammer Throw – Build an outfit around your favourite two-handed hammer
  • Discus – Build an outfit around one of the shield skins here

Here are my contributions for the first three events.

Head: Mok’Nathal Beast-Mask
Shoulder: Talondeep Spaulders
Chest: Ghostworld Chestguard
Belt: Lifecycle Waistguard
Legs: Legguards of Nature’s Power
Boots: Cleated Ice Boots
Gloves: Gloves of the Passing Night

I don’t quite remember how this transmog started but it soon developed into a more ‘beastly’ mog so I thought it would be cool if my Mogolympian in her human form brought out her inner worgen.

Hammer Throw
Hammer Throw (Paladin Plate)
Head: Crimson Beholder Eye
Shoulders: Burden of Mortality
Chest: Crystalforge Chestguard
Gloves: Gauntlets of Annihilation
Belt: Girdle of the Righteous Path
Legs: Crystalforge Legguards
Boots: Boots of the Protector
Hammer: Hammer of the Naaru

After a recent LBR, Coolidge managed to score the Hammer from Gruul’s Lair so I thought it would be fun to try a mog for it.

Discus (Paladin Plate)
Head: Helm of the Thousand Needles
Shoulder: Spaulders of the Righteous
Chest: Breastplate of Avenging Flame
Belt: Vicious Gladiator’s Clasp of Cruelty
Legs: Legguards of the Emerald Brood
Boots: Sapphiron’s Scale Boots
Gloves: Diemetradon Plate Gloves
Off-Hand: Glyphed Buckler

Designing this set, there was a definite ‘Tron-like’ feel to this but I wasn’t sure if it was due to the blue tones or the disc itself. Either way this was one of my favourite designs in the competition. Ok, so maybe Tron / Riverdance :P
